SPRING CLEANING MADE EASY THIS WEEKEND
You don’t have to have a major home overhaul to make an impact around the house this spring. A simple freshen up will make a world of difference.
Swapping bed linen from your winter to a summer duvet? Use vacuum storage bags to remove excess air and save space. These bags will create an air tight, but more importantly dust free storage solution, that takes up only a fraction of the space.
Get your duvet dry cleaned. It’s one less thing for you to take on the responsibility of, and you’re bedroom will feel fresh and clean.
Don’t neglect your curtains. If they are machine washable, give them a quick spin and iron while wet. You’ll be amazed at how much brighter your windows will seem, and they’ll smell glorious; air freshener without the cost.
Two easy ways to sruce up the bedroom and the living room, without a black bag or hoover in sight :-D
DECLUTTER YOUR COUNTER TOP THIS WEEKEND
We all do it, fill our counter tops with our latest gadgets because a diet makes us think we will make a fresh smoothy or soup every day.
A cluttered counter top looks messy; even with the best intentions. It reduces the work space you have when cooking, which in turn makes you feel more flustered when cooking, and more likely to spread mess when trying to find counter space.
Think hard, lf you can’t remember when you last used something, pack it away in the cupboard.
For more frequently used utensils, try storing them in a deep drawer. When you do need it, you won’t have to dig to the back of the cupboard; creating more mess. You can simply open the drawer fully and select which utensil you need from the collection.
ORGANISE YOUR SHOES THIS WEEKEND - TRANSPARENT SHOE STORAGE
No more opening shoe boxes to discover the contents. A shoe cubby storage system with easily visible contents keeps shoes perfectly in place.
Alternatively, if you want to conceal your shoes, front opening shoe boxes are a clever way to avoid disturbing the pile and save making a mess.
For ideas, have a look at our shoe storage range
TIDYING UP THE BATHROOM THIS WEEKEND
Even the smallest bathrooms can still look stylish and uncluttered.
If space is a real challenge, utilising the back of the door is a great way to increase storage space. You can use over door hooks for an easy way to create hanging space for towels or robes.
Why not try painting the door with magnet paint? This will allow you to attach storage accessories for what you really need, without any fuss.
The space above the toilet is often overlooked; a perfect place to install some shelves.
Suction organisers will help you rapidly gain extra storage space on glass or tiled walls.
And if you are short on space, use clear storage containers to achieve an uncluttered feel. Make use of glass tumblers and vases around the house, for a cost effective, instant storage solution.
CREATE A LOVELY WELCOME HOME THIS WEEKEND
The Hallway is the passage between home and the outer world, and if you aren’t careful it can get messy, fast.
Plan storage for outerwear and rainwear near the front door; coat stands and hooks keep rain gear, jackets and summer hats in check. Perhaps a console unit with baskets will help you easily maintain order.
Limited space? Well how about roomy pockets that can hang on walls to help store scarves and gloves.
A clutter free, organised hallway makes life easier, makes you feel instantly welcomed and relaxed when entering, and creates a beautiful entrance to your family's home.
ORGANISING THE HOME OFFICE THIS WEEKEND?
We all know that being organised makes us more productive. So an organised workspace can really help the work flow.
1.First start by putting all unnecessary paperwork in the recycling bin.
2.A simple storage box will help you to quickly tidy mail off the desk and into one easy to find place.
3.Create a message board and a ‘to do list’. This will keep you focused on the task at hand; avoiding pulling out unnecessary paperwork and making a mess.
4.Organising different tasks/ paperwork into different colour storage files will make it easier to identify where things are, and easier to put back!
You don’t need to have a major overhaul to get a bit of order. A few simple changes will get you decluttered quickly.
TIDYING THE KIDS ROOM THIS WEEKEND?
Now that January has passed, you may notice you suddenly have a surge of new toys from Christmas to contend with.
The best rule for efficient children’s storage is to make it easier to put away than to get it out. Use floor level storage chests so they don’t have to reach up. Open plastic baskets are a great way to hold toys in a quick, easy cost effective way. Make it as easy as possible for kids to literally place their toys back where they belong and they are more likely to stick to it.
